For the dedicated carp fishing fanatic who wants to take their angling to the next level there is only one option: investing in a top quality bait boats. Once laughed off as unnecessary gadget, bait boats are now a vital element of the carp angler’s angling arsenal. Not only does a top quality bait boat allow you to quickly and effectively distribute large amounts of freebie baits far out with unparalleled precision but a bait boat can also get your rig out to previously unreachable features. Whether you wanted to target the area under low or overhanging foliage or you wanted to explore a feature several yards outside of your comfortable casting zone, a bait boat gives you the opportunity to explore these new waters and reap the rewards these untouched zones can hold.
Waverunner is one of the premier bait boat brands available and the Waverunner Sport features many of the incredible benefits of the other boats in the Waverunner range, as well as a number of other features that really set it apart from the rest. Firstly, this is the only boat in the Waverunner range to be powered using a jet propulsion technique, with fitted weed covers. This has multiple benefits, as it not only allows the boat to reach a greater top speed – should time be against you – but it also creates less water disturbance. This makes it ideal for getting in close to those tight swims where you know fish are hiding in the margins without causing alarm – perfect for stealthy carp fishing. The weed covers also makes it significantly less likely for the boat to get caught in weedy tangles – an issue which is not only inconvenient but could leave your bait boat stranded in the middle of your venue, should the tangle be too great. This makes the boat ideal for margin work and perfect for targeting islands in the middle of your venue or previously unfishable far-side margins.
With a maximum bait capacity of just over 2kg this bait boat allows you to deliver large amounts of bait with accuracy and ease. You can also place your rig and hookbait in the hopper with your bait boat, allowing you to drop your freebies and your rig in exactly the same spot. This practically guarantees a perfect presentation! The importance of delivering your bait and hookbait to your marker with minimal water disturbance cannot be overstated, either. By using the Waverunner Sport to get your bait and hook directly to the fish without disturbing them you are significantly increasing your chance of a big catch. Spods are useful for getting small amounts of bait to one spot, but repeated spodding can cause huge disturbances that scare away nervous or wily fish. By using a bait boat with a super silent engine, such as the Waverunner Sport, you can get all the bait you need to the perfect spot in one quick and quiet go.
Two large and bright headlamps make this bait boat ideal for low-light and night time baiting. Perfect for getting your rig back out there after a midnight take, the bait boat is also fitted with hopper-activation lights that let you know when the hopper doors have been opened. Like all Waverunner bait boats, the Sport is fitted with fail-safe anti-loss technology. This means that if you drive the bait boat out of its 500m range (weather and water dependent) then one of the motors switches off, turning the boat 180 degrees and driving it back until it reaches the handset signal. You never have to worry about loosing your bait boat ever again!
